't think you can trust -- >> senate majority leader harry reid says he hopes gun legislation will come out of the judiciary committee but he was noncommittal over whether he would sign an assault weapons ban. >> would you vote for it? >> frankly, she knows, i haven't read her amendment, i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense but i'll take a look at it. >> i will bring in "washington post" columnist ruth marcus and senior staff writer for "the hill" alex bolton. good monday morning to both of you. ruth, this is the president's first big sell to the american people. what do you think he needs to say here? >> well, the president said he was going to give it everything he's got. i think what he needs to say is look, don't listen to the nra, listen to logic or listen to the nra from a number of years ago when it supported universal background checks. i think that there are three issues here in order of likelihood. one is background checks which has huge support and makes complete sense. one is limits on magazine sizes which i completely think the administra
with harry reid what they wi do to avert this from happening. instead he is pointing fingers at congressional republicans who twice voted for replacement plan to do something about these but, absent the president's leadership, absent harry reid doing anything we'll not sit here to debate against ourselves. it is time for real leadership out of washington and we're not seeing tha dennis: president obama has been warning us, women and poor children, will go without being able to eat if we have the sequester cuts. yet he hasn't scheduled an emergency meeting at white house until friday. the cutsave to go into place according to congress based sometime on friday. is he taking this seriously enough? >> i don't think so. i mean if you actually look, he is something like 5,000 miles on nrcc.org. you see the video. we talk about that he has flown 5,000 miles for campaign rallies seemingly for re-election he already won. i don't understand where his quote, unquote leadership is coming in this. we want to avert this with real cuts that make sense. the president hasn't been a partner. and this, look thi
feinstein's assault weapons ban legislation, but top senate democrat harry reid sounds cautious about feinstein's proposal. >> she's talked to me about her assault weapons ban, a new one, and she believes in it fervently and i admire her for that. i'll take at that look at it. and we will all kinds of issues to deal with and i think everyone would be well-advised to determine how to read it. >> other tough votes on fiscal issues such as taxes and spending. house speaker john boehner, a republican says the process isn't easy. >> frankly, there's a lot of scar tissue that carries over with a lot of these bills, it's tough for congress to figure out where the common ground is. >> so the challenge for harry reid balancing loyalty to president obama and looking out for members who are on the ballot in 2014. >> alisyn: that's a tough dance or a boxing match if i'm going to use the harry reid analogy, thanks, mike. also, developing this hour, new reaction from the white house, growing concern over the president's policies that allowed drone strikes on u.s. citizens comes in the wake after re
, and when harry reid, back on the republican side, he -- one of them that he demanded to have a 60-vote threshold. john bryson, secretary of commerce, he was required to have a 60-vote. this is not a bill buster, but saying you have to file cloture in order to get this on the floor for a vote. that's a 60 vote threshold, and, lou, that happens all the time. lieu -- lou: first time was the majority leader's point, and aside from that, you know, i know you all and the senator are fascinated by the arcane rules and procedures which you must observe. for the rest of us who sit out here, you know, in the vast -- the vast rest of this country, we're kind of interested in whether or not you're pleased with where we are with whether or not you think that hagel was ultimately win con confirmation. >> okay. first of all, let me tell you, senator cruz is a new senator. he's on the arms services committee. i'm the ranking member as you pointed out. all he wants is information he asked for for several weeks having to do with speeches that hagel made to foreign groups and how much money he got from t
that decision. >> dana: a race walker at the capitol is harry reid. >> brian: 1897 is when olympics started and it began with wrestling. it's the ultimate character sport. you can be big or small. you have a place. if they take it away it's going to crush a sport beat up by title 9 in college. >> andrea: as a greek i'm offended they are trying to change the olympics. this is unfortunate for guys training for the olympics for a long time. this will hurt college sports and high school sports. what are you supposed to work toward? if you get rid of the super bowl, the ultimate goal. this is the goal for the guys. this is the wussificaton of the world. >> gregworld. >> bob: you need all these for modern petasiaon, who would you rather watch? >> eric: they took baseball out as well. leave wrestling in. every high school and college in country has a wrestling team. you need a mat. that is all you need. you don't have to have equipment and tons of insurance. >> dana: i think this is a war on short guys. this is a war on shorter guys. and from p.r. perspective, give them advice. donald rumsfeld is
released but gop aides released he should call harry reid from his own party and who coals the senate. >> shepard: secretary of defense leon panetta also warns the cuts with hit the pentagon especially hard. while a great deal of the money would come from military training units 000s of civilians could face big pay cuts and even layoffs. particularly in two states. jennifer griffin at the pentagon for us tonight. >> reporter: iif the deep budgt cuts go into effect in 8 days time the hardest hit states will be california and virginia. 17% of the defense cuts in virginia will likely fall on one community known as hampton roads. in fact, the human impact of the sequester on small businesses in this area, these businesses contract to the navy, it is already being felt. tom taylor owns a ship repair business near norfolk. some of his contracts with the navy are already in jeopardy. >> it is not like turning on a picket. you don't turn it on and turn it off. if it is canceled these things are are months or years in the planning stage. if they are canceled they don't come right back, you kno
republicans passed so many things that just never see the light of day. and harry reid's senate. but the way things used to work, you used to pass things in the house, and then the senate would pass things. and then when harold and i at least were in washington in the '90s, then you go to conference committee, and they battle it out. that doesn't happen if harry reid doesn't pass things in the senate. he is the president's pocket veto. >> the step you're missing in that is -- and kevin mccarthy's interview proves that denial is not simply a river in egypt -- there's no conference committee. >> can i -- hold on. hold on. >> that's a good one. that was so fancy. >> is not just a river in egypt. >> that's what he does now. >> that's something brad pitt would say in one of those chanel ads. >> let's call brad. >> standing against the wall wearing nothing. >> he's wearing the sweater. >> go like this. >> you can't get away with saying things like that on this show. >> i want to hear his vision. >> why? more "morning joe." >> i know you're way above the cliche. i'm sorry. >> stupid cliche. >> what
call it -- i call it a steamroll of socialism that is being driven by nancy pelosi, harry reid, and fueled by barack obama. >> so very strong feelings about obama care. i should also tell you, though, that congressman browne also has very strong feelings about fruits and vegetables. he has very, very strong feelings about fruits and vegetables. >> the cdc, they're going to be calling you and finding out how many fruits and vegetables you eat today. this is socialism of the highest order. >> you see, there is kndominion and cherubimss. and the cdc calling on your vegetable intake. the highest order. one more. this came when people started to lose patience with the fact that the republican party puts guys like paul broun on the science committee in congress. yes, paul broun is on the science committee. he oversees federal science policy for us as a nation. >> i've come to understand that all that stuff i was taught about evolution and embryology and big bang theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of hell. and it's lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught t
, instead of trying to protemenen, harry reid needs to remove the gavel. when the new york times is raising questions about his fitness to serve in light of, you know the allegations out there. what does at that tell you? that tells me that there's a problem. >> it tells me there's a problem with the newspapers. i don't know whether or not the new york times, and members of the senate unless there's something in the constitution i overlooked. >> sean: let me ask you a question about you. here you are, the head of the powerful house ways and means committee. you guys are in charge of writing tax law. and then all of these ethics issues comes out on you, and taxes. seriously, why did you allow that to happen knowing you spent all these years in congress and that that was going to hurt your reputation, why didn't you just pay the bill? >> actually, that case is not really over. and according to my counsel, jay goldberg, i don't think it would be proper for me he to discuss it further on your show, but i tell you one thing, when it is over, you'll be the first one to get the answers. >> sean: t
a balanced budget amendment the kind of things that endear people in the republican primary voter. and harry reid spent more money than any of the other candidates in order to get the weakest republican into the general election knowing that they had a very difficult uphill fight in missouri and sure enough they got the weakest candidate and he blew himself up with the infamous current about illegitimate rape. >> you say it is to put in more quote electable candidates. the conservative wing of the republican party says the most eledgable is the most moderate and that is not necessarily the people they want to see running for office. >> lock, look, looking, look, look, look, let's be clear about this. cross roads support for tea party candidates. we are the largest financial backers of tea party candidates for the senate and the house. we spent over $30 million for tea party senate candidate. over $25 million for house candidates. $2.9 million for marco rubio. more than any other group in the general election. $2.7 million for rand paul. $8 million in colorado for ken buck. $5.1 million in ne
stuart: we just had time to squeeze in the "highlight reel." >> president obama and harry reid wants more "revenue." >> and looking to expand it. >> republicans would have been blamed for any tax increase on the middle class. >> the end result being he takes more money off of wealthy people. >> it slows us down gradually. >> many can say texas don't matter. of course they will in the long run. stuart: here we come. what a perfect moment to throw it to dagen and connell. connell: good morning, everyone. dagen: america is a good bet. here to tell you why. connell: one of our guests in this hour could be the next energy secretary. dagen: more on the power outage and the record-breaking at cbs sports for that incredible game. connell: and cyber attacks, the white house considering action against china. dagen: i had the ravens, did you? by a field goal, 27-24. connell: nobody knows football like dagen mcdowell. clearly. dagen: stocks now has to do every 15 minutes, nicole petallides at the new york stock exchange. nicole: a good bet going. if yo you're betting on the mar, 14,000 mar
are applied. harry reid and other democrats, however, respond to that. i think this can be done responsibly. whether it is domestic spending or defense. what the president does have in his advantage here is republicans are somewhat divided in this. i think it is important for the republican caucus to stick together on this. dagen: what about that i am a conspirators sometimes, what if the economy continues to chug along at the casting, then it kind of points to the fact that more cuts should have been. you can say i am an idiot. >> i think the administration is concerned because their base does not want to see this. they have political concerns. i do not think they are practical and the terms of the government's ability to move forward and provide services and so forth. they are more worried about the political out, i think. connell: lower gdp estimates, or is there at least some individual companies that will be affected? >> the spending that obama has wanted, he has gotten. spending has increased. what do we have to show for it? the slowest economic recovery in three generations. dagen: s
, chris, something that stood out to me is the backbone of harry reid. had he perhaps more of a backbone during these filibuster negotiations, and filibuster reform, perhaps he wouldn't be sitting here having this discussion anyway, and some of the fault, maybe a large portion of the fault lay with harry reid for us even having this discussion this morning? >> well, in fairness, look, both sides have threatened to do something about the filibuster and both sides are reluctant to do it, because quite frankly, they know the once that were in the majority now know at some point they'll be in the minority and vice versa and you know, there is some deference made to some rules of the senate and one of the things they all say if we'd stop the filibuster we'd become just like the house and i promise you on in congress on capitol hill that's not a compliment. >> is there any merit to what democrats are saying about the g.o.p. blocking this and putting the country at risk 'cause it's such an important security post? >> no, i mean, for one thing, the senate democrats said well, we're not going to
override -- harry reid yesterday said the nra is just one organization among many. we listen to them but that doesn't mean we follow them. can we override the nra on these background checks? will we this time? 866-55-press. one other gun-related item that caught my attention that i find disgusting, this headline in "the new york times," got the whole article because i clipped it, it bugged me so much the most wanted gun in america. you know what happened up in newtown connecticut on december 14th, this union gunman broke into sandy hill elementary school, takes out his ar 15, mos down 20 innocent 6 graders, some of them shot 10, 11 times action with that ar 15, also mowed down and killed six innocent teachers and supervisors there at that school the police say that's the weapon he used, the ar 15. so what did we do about it? what did americans do about that? did they turn in disgust at that weapon, that semi automatic assault rifle? did they say this good shall beould be banned because nobody needs a gun like that to defend himself or her family? we did the opposite
hunters obama's agenda won't take away their hunting rifles. she talks about harry reid which did take me off on "meet the press" saying i don't know if i'll vote for the assault weapons ban. i didn't last time because it didn't make sense. what? >> it made sense enough to work. >> didn't make political sense. >> stephanie: right. what do we do about those democrats? >> well, i mean, essentially they have to be continually called out. the reality is that if you look at the numbers if you look at the nra gives you an "a" rating, how well do o you fair, it is almost meaningless if not detrimental. >> stephanie: somebody made that point. however high percentage of people they supported lost. stop being scared of them. >> and most smart gun owners like i said, my dad has a lot of guns. and is technically a member of the nra but doesn't have any interest in having an anti-tank weapon. so they don't really send him the literature all the time. >> stephanie: let me finish what joan says. hymn it is the art of the possible. [ ♪ battle hymn of republic ♪ ] she says the point of leadership is t
'm renominating them to go through the formal senate process that they never had the first time because harry reid never got them a committee hearing. >> it's starting to seem just a bit like the president doesn't have much regard for that co-equal branch of government stuff or checks and balances. he has a very specific agenda at work here, and that is to move straight ahead with the nominations of sharon block, robert griffin. there's only one, the chairman, mark, mark gaston pierce who is lawfully confirmed by the united states senate, it's-- >> supposed to be five on there. right now three, only one is whom is there legitimately. >> after the d.c. court of appeals rule it's unconstitutional, which in the views of many makes all of tfofe decisions they've made over 200, not valid and have to be reconsidered at some point by a lawfully-- >> if the supreme court reverses the lower court they're back in business. right now the only decision standing and they haven't officially appealed it, nlrb, is the one saying you do not belong on that board and you never had the authority to appoint them, pres
the day he got in the senate, he was bored. harry reid said, you don't like it here, you're bored here. why don't you run for president? >> he was considerably more politic about how he spent his short time in the senate. >> talking about barack obama's pathway he wasn't worried about that, he wasn't worried about building bridges, right? >> no, but he found a way to get along with his fellow senators as did hillary clinton who came along having greater ambitions, but careful to go step by step and not to seem bigger for her britches than she wanted to seem. >> this is an odd way to last in washington. we'll see how he does. >> lindsey graham said you get respect in the senate if you can throw a punch and you have to show you can make a deal. ted cruz has thrown lots of punches and hasn't shown he can legislate or endure. this remains to be seen. >>> and at the white house to deliver remarks on billions of dollars on automatic budget cuts set to kick in next friday. according to administration officials, the president will challenge republicans to make a quote simple choice between pro
